How to set up Face ID with a mask

First of all, make sure that you have updated your iPhone to iOS 15.4

Upon turning it on after updating the software, it will give you a notification of setting your face ID right away, but in case it doesn’t then just follow the below mentioned steps.

  1. Open Settings and tap the Face ID & Passcode option. It will ask you to enter your passcode.
  2. Toggle on the Face ID with a mask switch and tap Use Face ID with a mask.
  3. Scan your face to set up your Face ID. You don’t need to be wearing a mask while doing this as it is mostly scanning your eyes.
  4. If you also wear glasses then head back to the Face ID & Passcode menu and select Tap Add Glasses.

This way you can unlock your iPhone while wearing both glasses as well as a mask.

Note: The Face ID saves what your glasses look like. Therefore, you will have to scan every pair of glasses beforehand otherwise it will not unlock if it doesn’t recognizes them.
